INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis-based Allison Transmission (NYSE: ALSN) is partnering with Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and GILLIG in California to deliver 24 electric hybrid buses to IndyGo. Allison says the system improves fuel consumption by up to 25% versus a conventional diesel bus and reduces CO2 emissions, helping to protect the environment.
Allison’s H 40 EPTM electric hybrid propulsion system is paired with the Cummins B6.7 engine in GILLIG buses.
“Given the constant evolution, high capital expenses associated with charging infrastructure and other quality and reliability concerns, many transit properties across the country are struggling to implement fully electric solutions for their fleets," said Rohan Barua, vice president of North America sales, global channel and aftermarket at Allison Transmission. "The Allison eGen Flex is a viable, reliable option that allows fleets to protect the environment and improve ridership experience right now."
